Flu Shot and Guillain-Barre Syndrome

Flu Shot and Guillain-Barre Syndrome - Nevada City

Chlorinated Water Causes Cancer Nevada City CA

A new study reports an increased incidence of a severe neurological disorder in people who get the flu shot. The disorder, Guillain-Barre Syndrome, is potentially life threatening. Victims report pain and numbness in the toes and ankles, then the fingertips. The discomfort moves inward toward the trunk, and muscle weakness develops. In many the disorder moves trunk-ward until it affects the diaphragm and breathing is affected--some people have to be put on respirators.

I have seen this disorder 3 times in 3 years of practice--each time was within 6 weeks of getting the flu shot! Other facts to consider this flu season are that the CDC reports the flu shot to be less that 20% effective in the general population, and that it contains aluminum--a possible cause of Alzheimer's disease.

Remember too that Andrographis Paniculata is an excellent, proven preventative and treatment for flu--and its safe!
